UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva survived the scariest threat to his record-setting title run at UFC 117 when Chael Sonnen battered him around the cage for 4.5 rounds. Sure Silva locked up a triangle choke/arm bar and got the tap in the fifth and final round, but it looked like his reign was over for most of the fight.
The two rematch at UFC 148 on July 7 in Las Vegas and to help hype the rematch the UFC has released the complete video of the first bout. Enjoy!
Sonnen infamously failed a urine test post-fight for an elevated testosterone ratio (he was at 17:1 testosterone:epitestosterone) and had to serve a long suspension from the California State Athletic Commission. He's now got his therapeutic use exemption (TUE) for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) so unless he fails a test between now and fight time, we should finally be getting our rematch.
